Ferrari F 512 M
First ever studless MOC
About this creation



The latest addition to my supercar garage -- the rarest model in the Testarossa Series! The F512M. According to the information, only 500 of this beauty was produced!

It shares most parts from the elder brother - 512TR. However, the iconic flip up headlight of the 512TR and Testarossa is being replaced by a new integrated headlight. Being the successor of the 512TR, Ferrari did some minor modification and the result is 12 more hp from the 512TR, which top up the hp to a massive 440hp! With this increment of the engine power, the 512 may reach a top speed of 195mph and shoot into 100kn/h under 5sec [4.7sec in precise].Besides ,this 512 is the last generation of the Ferrari Flat engine series. Ferrari introduce a new V12 to it's successor which ends the F12 legend here.

The interior remains unchanged but a new steering wheel ,adjustable pedals were included, metal gear knob were included.

For my version of F512M, it is a race version instead of the normal F512M. The second seat is removed and replaced by a roll cage, which maximized it's chassis strength and reduce some weight.

The main challenge of this car was the opening mechanism of the boot. However, I found a really genius design which enable the panel to open up smoothly. The technique is invented by Sven Bode



All the functioning element. I try to pack as much detail as possible to this car~


The front view. The credit of the headlight goes to Firas. He shows me some really fantastic technique to build it!


Rear, tilted. The rectangular light is replaced by the traditional Ferrari light-double round.


Interior. 1/3 of the dashboard is chopped to place the roll cage:


Engine bay. I know that the beam stretching through the cover is ugly, but without that brick, the entire structure of the boot it too weak. Very sorry about that.


F12 Engine is unloaded.


Overall from engine bay to the interior


Well, some may ask me:"What is the difference between with and without the roll cage?"
Well, here I show you a small experiment:
I flip my car:

This is what happen without roll cage[the roof crumbled]

This is what happen with roll cage[the roof still intacted!]

Hey Kin! Sorry for not commenting earlier on this. Your 512M is without any limitation the best Testarossa derivate ever built in this scale and easily your best Ferrari ever. Sideskirts, hood lamellae, racing stripe etc. make up a very fine build. Best wishes to Malaysia, Jens

Thank you for the comments! Your 512 is definitely looking good...I especially like the rear engine cover and your unique way of making the vents...Great overall!

F 512 M is often overlooked, anyway to me seems to be the finest incarnation of Testarossa. Your car looks terrific and absolutely amazing. Stays very truly to the awesome original. If only Lego produces such set, i'd buy it straight away.

Quoting Ali Ali Nice if u dont mind me asking can u post instructions and if not tips on how to make the body and what lego models u used Thanks :)
Well, it is very hard to make a instruction, but tips are always easier to do. The side vent is just a [http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=44728] + some curve slope. Thats all. Nothing special skill involved.

Great work, on the shape, color, and design. I too am building a car similar to this and understand how hard it can be. Great job.

Great job. To be honest I was getting a little bored of all the recent Ferrari MOCs, as a lot of them look almost exactly like the Lego sets, and not in a good way, but yours is noticeably original : ) The the shape is original, the details are original and the extra features are original : ) The roll cage I especially like. I always do the 'upside-down drop test' on my models too!
